Greetings from the Priddis Community Association. Here is what is happening in the coming weeks:


  • Pickleball continues in the hall each Thursday. 1-3pm, 3-5pm, 5-7pm are the available times and can accommodate 4-5 people per time slot. Drop-in fees ($5 for members, $10 for non-members) are payable in cash to the donation box at the hall. The board is looking at utilizing an app called TeamSnap to try to coordinate drop-ins. If you would like to be added to this email list, please contact pcahallrentals@gmail.com.

  • March 18th is Family Movie Night at the hall. Doors open at 5:30 with curtain at 6:00pm. Admission is free courtesy of Meota Gas Co-op and their generous donation to our community. If you wish, bring something comfortable to sit on as we watch ‘Homeward Bound’. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase so please bring cash.

  • Kids’ Clothing & Toy Swap is back on April 15th, 11a-3p at the hall. Please contact Leah (spruceandpinehome@gmail.com) if you would like to donate items to the swap. If you do not donate, you can still shop for a small cash fee.

  • The PCA is incredibly excited to bring Pocket Dial to the hall for an evening of live music and dancing. Doors open at 7:30pm with refreshments available for purchase by cash. All proceeds go towards the refurbishment of the community tennis/pickleball courts. Tickets can be purchased, beginning March 17th, either online using a credit card: pca.getcommunal.com/parent_programs, or in cash at the Priddis General Store. This event will sell out so purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment.


The PCA would like to extend a big thank you to all of the volunteers that made the hockey season a success. Did you know that there are hundreds of volunteer hours that go into planning and execution of the season, as well as maintaining the ice? Not one person holds a paid position within Panther’s. Congratulations, everyone, on another successful season!




Thank you to all that came out to Winterfest 2023! It was a big success with over 200 people interacting with their community. Thank you to Karla Ramsay for planning, Priddis Fire for bringing the trucks, Millarville Mutts & Mustangs for running the snack tables, the View & Brew for allowing patrons to access the county reserve parking area via their land, and to everyone else who chipped in along the way.


Here is what is coming up in Priddis:


  • Drop-in pickleball starts February 23rd. We are running 3 time sessions of 1-3pm, 3-5pm, and 5-7pm. Ideally there would be 4-5 people for each session. $5 drop-in fee payable in cash to the donation box in the hall. We are still hoping for someone to volunteer to coordinate so that the courts are being utilized in the most efficient manner.


  • Feeling jazzy? Try Jazzercise! M/W/F from 9:30-10:30. Fees are payable in cash at the door. Contact Judy (jazzed@telus.net) for more information.


  • Summer camps and preschool are open for registration. More information can be found on Rediscover Play’s website: www.rediscoverplay.com/programs


  • February 25th is the Priddis Shinny Hockey Tournament. We still have space left for just a couple of teams to enter. $150 entry per team of 6 players. Teams will play 4-on-4, and also require a goalie and one substitute. Prizes for the winning team. Register online: pca.getcommunal.com


  • Based on our recent facebook poll, the community has suggested that they would love to see a family movie night. Mark your calendars for March 18th at 6pm. This is a free event for PCA members.


  • Kids’ Clothing & Toy Swap in back on April 15th, 11a-3p at the hall. Please contact Leah (spruceandpinehome@gmail.com) if you would like to donate clothes to the swap. If you do not donate, you can still shop for a small cash fee.


  • On April 22nd we will host an evening of live music and dancing at the hall. More details to come!

Your Priddis Community Association has a number of items to note for this month’s edition of the newsletter. It really is exciting to watch our community come back to life after years of disconnection in the world!


  • Last month we hosted the 2022 AGM. Thank you to those that came out and welcome to our two new board members!

  • Winterfest is quickly approaching on February 4th. This event is free to the Priddis Community due to a very generous donation from Meota Gas Co-op. Bring your skates to the Priddis Rink from 4-7pm and enjoy refreshments, sleigh rides, bonfires and fellow community members. We will be accepting cash donations that will contribute to the refurbishment of the pickleball and tennis courts. Volunteers are needed. Please reach out to Karla (pcahallrentals@gmail.com) if you are able to help.

  • Speaking of pickleball, with just enough space inside the community hall for a court, we are going to try to host a league starting in February. If you are interested in joining this beginner/intermediate league, please attend our information night on January 24th, 7pm at the Community Hall. We will need a passionate community member to spearhead the program. Please RSVP to Karla (pcahallrentals@gmail.com) if you are interested in participating in pickleball.

  • On February 25th, PCA will be hosting a 4-on-4 shinny hockey tournament. Teams will consist of 4 players, a spare/sub and a goalie. Entry into the tournament is $150 with registration posting and opening on January 24th at noon. Space is limited to 8 teams with 4 games guaranteed. More information and registration can be found at: pca.getcommunal.com/parent_programs

  • We have had a request to host a playing card night at the hall. Do we potentially have a community member that would be willing to coordinate this event? The board will offer support but we will need more help. Please email Casey (priddispresident@gmail.com) if you are interested in volunteering.

  • We have already started to plan children’s summer camps at the community hall for 2023. It is our hope to have 4 weeks of camp for children ages 3-12. Overnight camp is also in the works! More details will be provided in the next month.


Last but definitely not least, from time-to-time the PCA receives suggestions of community members that deserve to be recognized for their significant contributions to Priddis. This year we received nominations (see attached) for Arlene Jelfs and Sue Warren to be awarded a lifetime honorary membership. We would like to congratulate and thank both Arlene and Sue. Your efforts have made, and continue to make, Priddis the community we all know and love.
